New year, new web site features

We always swell with pride when our new clients tell us that they "love" our web site.  We pride ourselves in having the most user-friendly website for Atlanta real estate.  To maintain that mantle, we're not resting on our laurels.  Don't worry, we're not changing our popular Intown Atlanta Neighborhood Guide and Buckhead Neighborhood Guide, both of which are client  favorites.  We have, however, added an Atlanta Zip Code Guide, as well as completely upgraded our property search and display functionality.

Finding the perfect Intown Atlanta home has never been so easy, and with such an intuitive interface.  While other real estate web sites overwhelm visitors with a sea of textboxes, checkboxes and city selection dropdowns, we instead choose to keep things simple yet powerful.

Now, if you're one of those "technology doesn't work for me" types, don't worry.  Feel free to call or email us and we can set up a custom search for you.  You'll be the first to see new properties as they come on the market and be notified of price changes as soon as they happen via email alerts.

So whether you want to search all on your own, have it all done for you, or anywhere in between, we can help you. Happy house-hunting!
